The Journey to Meghma
 
Meghma, aptly named "the land in the clouds," is situated 9 km from Maneybhanjeng. The journey to this picturesque village is an adventure in itself, whether you choose to trek through the Singalila National Park or take a nostalgic ride in a 1950s Land Rover.

The Land Rover Experience
 
Traveling in a Land Rover to Meghma is an experience steeped in history. These classic vehicles were brought to Darjeeling by the British in 1958 to help transport tea on the region's challenging roads. The road from Maneybhanjeng to Sandakphu, one of the most arduous at the time, saw these robust vehicles replace horses, making multiple trips daily and transforming transportation in the area. Riding in one of these vintage Land Rovers today is like stepping back in time, offering a unique and nostalgic journey through the breathtaking landscapes of Singalila National Park.
